Is there such a thing as luck? (Read 1016 times)

      Do you pick up a penny?  Would you worry if you broke a mirror?  

       

      We are in control, right? 

       I pick up penny's all the time.  And I broke a mirror when I was 7 or so, and I don't think it caused me bad luck.

      "Running long and hard is an ideal antidepressant, since it's hard to run and feel sorry for yourself at the same time. Also, there are those hours of clearheadedness that follow a long run."  -Monte Davis

        WAIT!

         

        Only take ground pennies that are head side up.

         

        Taking a tail side up penny is BAD luck.

         

        Turn it over so that it is head side up for the next finder.

         

        Good mojo, there.

         

          WAIT!

            If I see one that tails, I flip it over .. .then point it out to my kid, who grabs it.  Is that bad luck, good luck, or no luck?

                HA!

                Tick tock

                  Yeah, but I'm not gaming it for my own benefit.  That should count for something, karmically.

                   

                  Karmaically.

                    You are trying to architect good fortune for your kid.  Very admirable.

                     

                    Unless kid is a co-conspirator.  Then the karma involved is suspect.

                     

                    Maybe.

                        Yes. He play's QB for Stanford and we will be subject  to a decade of awful puns and sports witticisms based on his name when he gets drafted in the NFL next year.
